Since you probably only have to change your watch battery once a year, if this kit doesn't already come with a Varta or Duracell battery, you should just go out and buy a Duracell (2032). Your best bet for this is - again - amazon.com because the retail prices for Duracell batteries vary widely. Other than that, it is all pretty straight-forward. If you are skilled at changing Suunto watch batteries, you won't ruin the hatch cover (there is no need to man-handle it, just get the slot the the right position and gently pry the cap off around the edges ... suunto has some videos on their site to help with this).

Last but not least, as someone who has purchased more than 5 (probably 10!) Suunto watches, I can say that the batteries last a good long time UNLESS you like to use the backlight, alarm, or other dynamic features. In a word, be prepared to self-service your Suunto watch if you like to use it! The investment is well-spent as these watches are built to last a lifetime if you don't mind dealing with annual battery and strap replacements. Knock wood - my Suuntos have not mechanically lost a beat in the last 12 years!

I saw another reviewer who ordered the wrong battery for their Suunto watch and noticed there was some inconsistency in model numbers. For anyone looking for a replacement battery for the T6, this is the correct model. Very easy to change the battery yourself (comes with a metal tool to help) and the watch retains its waterproof state thanks to the rubber casket which is included. Other than that, it's a battery and it works! Final note - if your watch has trouble sometimes connecting to the HRM or foot pod, or sometimes misses measurements, it could be that the battery is running low. Mine was just starting to have these problems but after I changed the battery, it was flawless again.

The package did not include the ring washer. I did install the battery and it seems to be splash resistant, but be aware it is not complete. Suunato demands a high price, but is very sloppy. What has happened to quality? On the up side, it is very easy to install

This item is very convenient to use. I think it should be a standard issued item with all Suunto watches. I wore out the slot on the back of the watch trying to replace the battery before I received this kit. Well worth the price.

If you order a battery kit for a Suunto vector, you'll get something for a different watch. This seller is a complete nightmare to deal with. Stay away. I had to buy from a different vendor and had to pay much more.

If your Suunto watch is old, and you've replace the battery more than a few times, you've probably almost destroyed the battery cover using a coin to open and close it. I finally had to give in and buy this kit, because i simply could not get the battery cover off.

This kit includes a removal tool with two pins, instead of a coin-like flat item that fits in the slot. The picture doesn't do it justice. It's a solid piece of metal.

I guess i didn't need the new battery cover, because i can get it on and off easily with this metal tool. But actually, the 10-year old rubber ring had deteriorated slightly, was filled with grit and didn't leave me feeling too confident in it's water-proofing.

I ended up with a battery i didn't need, because i have a dozen spares, but for $9 prime i wouldn't hesitate to buy this kit - both as a short-term solution to changing a battery, and as a long-term way to reliably change batteries every year.

Finally, the tool has a hole, so you can throw it on your keyring when you go traveling. I was in Kathmandu Nepal when my battery died once. A local watch shop replaced the battery, and after putting in the wrong battery, or an already used one, it died again a week later. Bring a spare battery and this removal tool on the road.

This is the fourth or fifth time I've replaced the watch battery in my t6. The newer covers (with a short straight edge that facilitates removal) and installation tool are great. I hope Amazon has fixed my problem by now. My order arrived and the battery kit (battery, replacement tool & cover with "O" ring) had been relabeled. The "new" part number was correct but this was NOT the battery kit for the t6. This kit had no tool, a different cover (lacking the short straight edge) and a battery that was 3 mm too large for the watch.

I placed a subsequent order on Suunto's web site and everything was good. The correct part even arrived faster from Suunto than from Amazon (I am in the USA).

Amazon gets one star for the quick credit to my account. This is the only time (since the 90's?) I've been shipped the wrong product by Amazon.

I've had the X6HR for about 5 years and have to replace the battery every five to seven months. I usually only replace the CR2032 battery, but after about three battery changes I thought it was time to get a new watch door with a new rubber seal for purposes of retaining the moisture barrier. I actually lost the door opener in a recent move, so getting another one of these was also appreciated. Using a quarter works, just not as effectively as the one provided by Suunto and the previous door was somewhat scarred from using a quarter. Oh well, another battery change in the life of owning this watch. The product arrived in a timely manner with no hesitations in the ordering process. I'd definitely use this vender again.

My Suunto goes through a battery every 1.5 yrs so I am frequently replacing the battery. I have read that it is recommended that you replace not just the battery but also the cover, so I always purchase this little package from whoever is selling it for the least.

I have never had an issue with install process, very straight forward. And I have never had a water leak after the install.

Great kit OEM battery replacement kit. I used to wear a Suunto Observer in Afghanistan for two years. Haven't worn it while being back in the States for about two years and the battery died about 18 months ago. Finally got around to replacing it. The Suunto design and the included tool made it a snap to replace - took me all of two minutes. I reused the original cover.
